Aquamacs 1.0 released
One Mac developer has released Aquamacs 1.0, a Mac-friendly varient of the time-tested Emacs text editor. The software aims to simplify the complex user interface commonly associated with Emacs, behaving the way Mac users expect while integrating well with other applications. Aquamacs offers standard Mac OS X keyboard commands alongside extended Emacs capability, and includes specialized support for most programming languages -- including C, C++, Python, Ruby, Perl, Java, AppleScript, Lisp, and more -- as well as text and markup formats like HTML or XML. Aquamacs 1.0 is based on GNU Emacs 22, is available for free as a Universal Binary, and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
